Colloidal Silver is a natural antibiotic and a natural antiviral silver supplement.
Colloidal Silver has been used since the beginning of recorded history.
Colloidal Silver Finally Defined
Colloidal Silver by definition is suspended silver particles in distilled water that has a particle size small enough to migrate by osmosis through a cell wall membrane. This small size of particle in solution makes the solution “colloidal”. The virus cell is very tiny (microscopic). For a colloidal silver particle to be able to travel through a virus cell wall to smother the organism it must be a lot smaller than the thickness of a virus cell wall.
A colloidal silver particle of 0.001 micron in size can easily meet this criteria. The fuzzy math about particle size is very simple. 0.001 micron = 1 nanometer.
The particle size of colloidal silver can range from 1 nanometer to 1 micrometer*.
(Particles larger than 1000 nanometers are no longer considered colloidal.) One nanometer particle is so small that you could only see it through a microscope and equals one-billionth of a meter (approximately 39 inches). Both sizes are small enough to migrate through osmosis and pierce the cell wall of a virus.The nanometer sized particles that you smell of freshly baked cookies is so small that they can be carried through the air without being seen. **
The colloidal silver particles are so small they can penetrate your skin or digestive tract and be assimilated into the blood stream.
The particles of silver are also small enough to penetrate virus or bacteria*** cell walls killing the foreign cells without harming the human body.
Colloidal silver can come in various strengths and color, ranging from 5 parts per million (PPM) to 1100 PPM. The color appears water clear to muddy brown depending on the concentration of silver in the distilled water.****
The production of colloidal silver varies from that using a 9 volt battery to produce 5 PPM colloidal silver, a high voltage generator producing 20 PPM, to the oldest known, mild protein, colloidal silver up to 1100 PPM.
Colloidal silver has been used for thousands of years as an antibacterial agent and now an antiviral agent that was once a prescription prior to 1939. After the discovery of penicillin, colloidal silver is sold as an ‘over the counter’ supplement.

Colloidal Silver PPM (Parts Per Million)
Colloidal Silver 1100 PPM has 1100 parts of silver to one million parts of water. When Choosing PPM remember the 1100 PPM is diluted with 5 liters of blood when taken internally, further diluting the PPM of silver. Your choice of best colloidal silver PPM should include the purpose of use.
Common commercially produced colloidal silver strengths are 1100 ppm, 500 ppm, 30 ppm, and 20 ppm.
Will the Real Colloidal Silver Please Stand up?
Which Colloidal Silver is real? Ionic, non-ionic, real, meso, nano, true, atomic, protein, advanced, electrically produced and pharmaceutical grade ARE ALL MARKETING misnomers that the sellers use in an attempt to market their specific colloidal silver to you. Do not be confused, they are all colloidal silvers even the 5 PPM Colloidal Silver water produced with a 9 volt battery at home. When used externally the results are basically the same. When colloidal silver is taken internally it is diluted and greatly reduced in effectiveness depending on the PPM. This article in no way concurs that all colloidal silvers are the same. No claim is being made of the effectiveness of a specific silver product or what pathogens are treated with colloidal silver, but if it is viral, bacteria or fungi, then colloidal silver has been known to be the best choice. When diluted with 5 liters of blood, the results will vary…

Colloidal Silver Today
To date colloidal silver is the ONLY known natural deterrent that kills virus, bacteria and fungus in the petri dish within 4 minutes. Super Bugs, MRSA, EEE, Staph, Pandemic Flu (influenza) salmonella and others no longer are controlled by antibiotics that worked on some for 70 years. However, all are killed by colloidal silver without hurting healthy cells.
Colloidal Silver consists of silver atoms suspended in distilled water. On a cellular level the silver particles are small enough to penetrate and destroy pathogens of all types, including bacteria, fungal spores, viruses, and parasites. Colloidal silver is an Immune Support supplement for the body. Although Colloidal Silver may work like a broad spectrum antibiotic, it is still called a supplement.
University studies show colloidal silver to be effective in killing over 650 organisms in laboratory tests, including yeast as in yeast infection, UTI as urinary tract infection and pink eye. Topical use is the most common use of silver. Colloidal Silver is tasteless, non-toxic to living tissue and is taken orally as a supplement.
Two time Nobel prize winner Linus Carl Pauling declared minerals are required for life. Dr. Pauling announced that mineral intake is inadequate for most Americans. Silver is a mineral found everywhere on the planet and in almost every plant and water source.
The viruses and bacterium that have grown resistant to the present day antibiotics, (especially those in the penicillin family) have mutated in as few as 17 days, making the vaccines for years later totally ineffective and useless. As a result, SUPERBUGS have developed a resistance to the penicillin family and only colloidal silver prevails as a working solution.
As of today no known pathogen has been able to build up a resistance to colloidal silver in the last 142 years and survive. All pathogens have died within minutes of being exposed to colloidal silver
Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine wrote of the use of silver for wound care more than 2,000 years ago,
Prior to refrigeration, silver coins were dropped into containers of milk to prevent bacteria proliferation in milk and cream.
Wagon trains placed silver coins in their water barrels to prevent bacterium build up.
Lancet, a United Kingdom medical journal, reported successful use of colloidal silver 1919.
Prior to the discovery of penicillin in 1928, Colloidal Silver was a prescription.
Dr. Bob Beck, created the first home generator to make electrically produced low voltage colloidal silver, 1995.
BYU University, Utah, tested colloidal silver on bacteria and virus pathogens. May, 2000,
Most hospitals worldwide use silver infused bedding and bandages to prevent infection.
For the last 70 years all newborn infants had their eyes flushed with silver at birth to prevent possible disease carried by the mother.
All burn centers immerse the victims in silver to prevent infection in the wounds.
June 6, 2006 The Wallstreet Journal reported:
ARC Outdoors uses silver infused fabric to produce antimicrobial socks for the U.S. military. ARC also sells to Wal-Mart, Bass ProShops, Cabela’s.
Curad USA, makers of hospital bandages and band-aids for home use that are lined with nano-silver particles.
Samsung Electronics has introduced laundry washing machines and new refrigerators that uses silver ions to sanitize the laundry.
Sharper Image has introduced plastic food storage containers that is infused with nano-silver particles to prolong freshness and retard spoilage.
Adidas, has licensed silver coated nylon fabric to incorporate antimicrobial silver in athletic and outdoor clothing for their ability to kill odors.
Doctors who use Colloidal Silver
Dr. Mercola, Dr OZ, Dr. Gerry Lemole, (Dr Oz’s father-in-law) Cardiologist,
Dr Sherry Rogers MD, Dr Loren Martin, professor emeritus, medical physiology, OSU
Dr. Josh Axe DC, Dr. Robert C. Beck, D.Sc., Dr. Bruce West, DC just to mention a few professionals who all use colloidal silver.
Is Colloidal Silver Toxic?
Toxicologist report Colloidal Silver is not toxic. Silver is in almost every water source worldwide. Of the 6 known cases of Argyria (the blue man), all used a silver nitrate product to excess or made their own concoctions of silver. No known cases exist of Argyria when used according to manufacturer’s suggested use.
Colloidal Gold is another colloidal supplement that has been used for treatment of nervous disorders.
